Welcome to Porchfest Gilroy! Porchfest Gilroy* is a free, family-friendly music event featuring musicians performing on neighborhood porches. The public is welcomed to stroll from porch to porch throughout the afternoon at no charge, free to enjoy whatever genre tickles their fancy. Bring a chair, snacks and relax!

Porchfest Gilroy is one of over 40 Porchfests to have popped up in North America and Canada since 2007. In its first two years, Porchfest Gilroy has featured over 50 musical acts. In its third year, Porchfest Gilroy will take place on two streets close to downtown. Come stroll down Hanna St from 12-3pm and Alexander St from 3-6pm on September 17 and enjoy local musical talent of all styles!

If you are interested in performing or in offering your porch as a venue, please let us know using the forms found on the Musicians and Porch Hosts pages. You can also contact us with any suggestions, questions, or remarks.

The Porchfest Gilroy Committee is busy lining up porches, reviewing musicians’ applications (tell your friends) and working on the 2016 program. Check back for updated details!
